For many Washington Nationals fans, a return of the Patrick Corbin to his 2019 form would be a blessing for all involved. Corbin was rocked in his first start of the year, made his next three starts with a double digit earned run average, and has been a shell of the pitcher who won 14 games with a 3.25 ERA in his first year in DC.
